Florence-based Polimoda International Institute of Fashion Design and Marketing recently signed a framework agreement with trade fair organiser Lineapelle, which deals with leather, accessories, components, synthetics and models for footwear, leather goods, garments and furniture, to create a research hub at Polimoda's Scandicci headquarters.

To analyse the impact of the current health crisis on the sector, the possible response and the role of training future fashion professionals, the institute and the company favour research, innovation and intergenerational collaboration.

The institute wants to set up a research centre at the Scandicci campus for leather goods and develop initiatives aimed at its promotion to support the sectors of accessories, footwear and metals through the search for trends, design, product and brand.

“The creation of a Research Hub on leather will be a great added value for fashion students, enhancing the excellence of our territory and becoming a valuable resource for companies,” said Polimoda president Ferruccio Ferragamo in a press release.
